This animated PowerPoint has been a hit with my second graders who are learning about the westward expansion in their social studies class. The love the song and also seeing images of the plains where the pioneers would have traveled.
The presentation is animated to go line by line in the song to help students learn difficult vocabulary and pace themselves through the song.
Finding a musical accompaniment was my biggest challenge. Some went too fast and some had changed verses. Finally I found a good karaoke version on iTunes that fit the three verses perfectly (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/home-on-range-in-style-public/id409481110)
As always I strive to create useful items for you and also for my students. I welcome your feedback so I may continue to improve my work :)
